Vintage Baseball Decor
Judy Jacob | Aug 6, 2018
Vintage baseball décor is an excellent choice for your den, “man cave”, family room or even the living room of a sports-oriented household. It’s also an ideal choice for the clubhouse, sports bar or restaurant where sports fans tend to gather. From distressed pictures of baseballs to a frieze of baseball players, baseball memorabilia is an attractive way to decorate your home or place of business.
Baseballs, Baseballs and More Baseballs
Pictures of worn baseballs show your interest in the game without starting up controversy over teams. They can be displayed as paintings on canvas, as wall borders, or even as the face of a clock. Suitably distressed, paintings can appear as if they were once hung on the wall of a team dugout, inviting conversation and tales of games of yesteryears.
Celebrate the Team
Framed posters, photographs, and even silhouettes of players in various positions can celebrate the teams and players who have taken part in this very American game. Derived from a variety of games played with balls and bats, growing up out of neighborhood teams that met in vacant lots, baseball was the Saturday afternoon entertainment in many neighborhoods. Football fits better on television, but nothing is better for a lazy afternoon of soft drinks, popcorn, hotdogs, and roasted peanuts, than baseball.
Focus on the Players
Some baseball players are so well known that you don’t have to be a fan to recognize the names. Signed baseballs, framed posters, or quotes from one of these players are bound to boost the morale of the viewer. Even if your baseball player is a three-foot tyke enrolled in the neighborhood t-ball roster, he or she will appreciate a poster displaying one of the baseball greats. It can also be an opportunity to introduce reading about and researching favorite players, getting your child ready for a lifetime of learning.
Vintage baseball décor can mean a lot of things to different people.
